The best moments from Pat McAfee’s ESPN alternate broadcast of Georgia vs. TCU national championship game

Quick Bit: Pat McAfee’s show at the College Football Playoff semifinals was a hit, and the chaos continued in Monday night’s national championship broadcast.

Full Story:

The highlight of ESPN’s Megacast slate for this year’s College Football Playoff was the perpetually fired-up Pat McAfee, whose alternate broadcast helped carry viewers through Georgia’s 65-7 evisceration of TCU on Monday night.

None of the co-hosts of “Field Pass with The Pat McAfee Show” abruptly left to join their wife in labor, unlike last time, but McAfee and the rest of the crew still produced hilarious moments on the sidelines at SoFi Stadium.

Check out some of the best moments from Monday night:

McAfee had some very intentional phrasing before kickoff . . .

He was completely thrown off by SoFi Stadium’s half-inside, half-outside concept, which allowed steady rain to get into the building.

It’s not a national championship game without Tim Tebow.

McAfee got in position to catch an extra point from Jack Podlesny and might’ve saved Tebow in the process.

Sometimes the attention was on the game, and other times it was on the outstanding mustache of a man standing behind the end zone.

This is the first season of McAfee’s sideline broadcast, so the timing was about the same as Max Duggan’s at certain points.

This is where the McAfee broadcast is at its best: up close to the action. McAfee was fired up when Georgia went up 38-7 late in the first half.

McAfee called his broadcast “the dumbest show that has ever run,” but the ratings might disagree.

Once the score hit 45-7, it was time for a Lou Holtz impression.

More Tebow, even without Tebow . . .

One of the coolest moments of the night came early in the fourth quarter when McAfee interviewed a veteran who was part of a group of 50 Americans who fought off 300 Taliban fighters.

Nothing encapsulated the game better than McAfee and Co. singing Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U.S.A.” over a replay of Georgia’s ninth touchdown of the night.

The College Football Playoff has been prone to blowouts, so it’s probably in ESPN’s best interest to keep McAfee around for situations just like this one. Someone needs to keep the energy high when the score is 65-7.
